I wasn't planning on writing an article today but instead doing some research on how to make it easier for me to post videos here. I use the Sublime service to provide videos using the html5 video tag and host the files myself. The problem is going from that nice, but very large, video that I shot on my iPhone and coming up with a lighter version you see here. Usually this is a huge pain involving at least four different (...)
Before I get back to writing about what I love (and getting off this two month vacation) I decided to update to the latest software and make more improvements to the way things are seen on this blog. In doing so I may have broken all the RSS links. This is just a test post to see if it still shows up in my feed reader or not.
I hope everyone is (...)
I was sitting outside and trying to find a solution to this silly problem. CSS fixed: is so inherently broken that nothing I did could stop it from obscuring content on the page. While the latest batch of code to the site did move it to a place that didn't hide any of the article it was still sitting there mocking me...
So while I sat I saw a (...)
As I get ready to push a whole bunch of changes to the site I take a moment while my coffee brews to relax for a moment. As I do, it comes to my attention that it seems a lifetime ago since the year changed, since lives changed. It seems impossible that we have been home for just over a month as a family. Having a new baby really messes with your sense of time. On one hand, you are forever doing the mundane tasks that need to (...)
The footer at the bottom that is held there using position:fixed was trouble in IE6 and broken on the Android. It worked on the iPhone mostly but zooming gave some undesirable results due to the drop shadow effect blocking input at the bottom of the screen. In order to make it work as well as I can for now across all platforms I had to lock the zoom in the mobile viewport.
I know this is not the best (...)
Well first off, thanks for the reports about the blog being hard to read in Internet Explorer. Brrrrr. Like a bad taste in my mouth. You can now read in pretty much any version of IE down to IE6 and the footer will stay stuck to the bottom where it belongs. You might have to do a hard refresh (control+F5) to get the fix to take effect. It seems to pick up the new CSS in IE9 but I have a simulator of sorts to render it in IE6. (...)
Good morning everyone. I am working diligently to fix the problems with photos not showing up in the articles when viewing with an iPhone (and possibly other smartphones) this morning. Most of the articles have been fixed.
One moment please...
After 42 days
in the NICU this dad is finally getting his stories down. Putting
pencil to paper if you will and sharing my experiences and feelings
about becoming a dad. I hope some people take the time to "smell
the roses" and understand that no matter what, there are always
others that know just how you feel. That have done or are doing the
very same things you are.
For me the act of writing this (...)
